If you need to advertise your sessions and spread the word on the amazing football programme you are doing, you can very easily share the URL link to the booking page of a session to your participants. This can be done via the various social media channels - or just a simple copy and paste to someone who might be interested as shown in the video below!
Here's a breakdown of how to do it on the FA Events Platform:
Once your event is created, the sessions will all show within your 'Upcoming Sessions' tab. To get here, click on your event, head to the 'Sessions' tab instead of the 'Details' tab, and then filter to 'Upcoming Sessions'.
You can also do this by going straight to the 'Sessions' tab on the main landing page (yellow) and subsequently clicking on a session of choice from there. This way might be easier if you had only one event as opposed to two or three.
If you have done it in the way of the above images, after clicking the drop-down arrow of the session you want to share, the very next thing you should see below is a blue box with the session's unique URL link in it. This is the link you would need to send out to participants for anyone who wants to book on.
By pressing 'Copy Link', the Events Platform will copy the URL for you, and then you can select any of the four sharing options beneath it (Twitter, Facebook, Email, and What's App) which will take you to the relevant sites. Paste the link to the participants and from there, they can book onto the session by pressing that same link.
It is also important to look at the 'Yes/No' question underneath the blue share box too, as this determines whether your sessions will be displayed on theFA.com for people to also book onto through the official FA site.
If you select 'Yes', then this session - and any other sessions you also choose 'Yes' to - will be visible for participants to search for on theFA.com via the FA Find Football Near You search tool where they can book onto a session there.
If you select 'No' for this question, then the session will not be listed on theFA.com and will consequently not allow the session to be searched for on the Find Football Near You search tool by keen participants.
An image of the Find Football Near You search tool is displayed below. You can use this search engine on the FA website to find various forms of football, including the Wildcats and Just Play programmes that are overseen on the FA Events Platform.
